I purchased the DJ autos off DDM tuning
So far could not be happier, I haven't had a single problem, they fit great are made of high quality materials, and lets not forget look great
I can't remeber what the price difference between the 2 of them was?

Just get Bosch or ZKW and be done with it. You'll end up with one of the two anyway when your Depo's/DJAuto's just break.

I've had both depos and DJ
The depos I had on my old 328 and the DJ I bought for the m3. Not a single issue with either of them. Only had the DJ for about 2 years now but I can say the Depos were on there for about 5 years before I sold it and they were still like brand new.

DJ auto's are better from everything I have heard. Depo's have a bunch of writing and garbage all over the glass while the DJ autos don't have all that crap. Also, if you are looking to get angel eyes on them, they are fully visible in DJ's while the bottom of them are cut off in Depos giving more of an upside down U shape rather than an O.

I'm looking into getting a set of DJ's myself in the near future. They are lowered to $105 and the Canadian dollar is above the US right now! lol

ok - I just rechecked and the ones that I ordered are DEPO Gen5 (projector 36) HID Angel Eyes.

Look cool in the picture, anyway

my Depos just showed up today and they're sweeeeet! Waiting for a set of aftermarket parking lights to show before getting everything installed. So here's the question - will a stock E38 battery/electrical system support new HID lights or should I upgrade to a Gel battery or something?

Don't need the new flood lights draining the battery

OP- you might wanna do some research on aiming the DEPO's... Im having a brutal time. see thread in gen dis...

which everone you get, laminx them!!!!

Pass on the Laminx... who wants dirty glue lines? I have the Only DOT approved lense protector available, that wont shrink.

Is the laminx important... like i bought mine 4 months ago (depos) and is it ok to put laminx on it right now?

Stupid iPhone buttons - obviously I meant this question for e36 and not a 38

On the Fest, (my point of comparison) they are regarded equally. Both are actually pretty damn good products. Personally I've the Depos. As mentioned above, spend the extra few dollars on the Laminex, Very well worth it.
